Adding to this, here are a couple other things to consider during the setup phase.

What should I set my move goal to on my Apple Watch?
Set your goal between your 30-minute intense exercise calorie burn and your 60-minute light exercise calorie burn. Example #1: If you average 750 calories for an intense 30-minute workout and 850 calories for a lighter 60-minute workout, I recommend setting your Move goal in the middle to 800 and leaving it there.

What's a good exercise goal for Apple Watch?
The WHO recommends that adults do at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity each week, which works out to about 21 minutes a day. For additional health benefits, WHO recommends aiming for 300 minutes a week, or 42 minutes a day. Apple set its 30-minute goal right in the middle of the WHO guidelines.

The tip about the setting your move in between the intense and light exercises is a good idea. You don't want to overdo it.
